When you’re getting married during the winter holiday season, there is no better way to crank up the festivities than by embracing the holiday theme. Whether you choose to create an elegant, glistening winter wonderland, or a glittery and glitzy jewel-toned holiday-themed wedding, it is sure to be a memorable occasion. A holiday-themed wedding will create warm memories every holiday season for the bride, groom, and everyone who participates and attends this important event.
Everything starts with the ceremony space. It sets the theme for the rest of the décor you choose for your wedding. When you’re embracing the holidays as the theme for what is going to be the most important day of your life (at least so far), embrace the colors, the smells and the feelings that bring out the spirit of this festive time of the year.
Decorating the Ceremony Space
If you’re looking for something that’s quintessentially holiday-themed, easy to move into a reception space, or that will look good in any ceremony space, consider poinsettias. These fun and festive holiday plants last a long time and maintain their good look. You can place plants up and down the aisles at each row of seats. This will instantly turn a plain space into one that really captures the spirit of the holidays.
Capture the spirit of Christmas with a small potted cypress tree in a decorative ceramic container with a cardinal painted on it. The tree is adorned with a festive ribbon and accented with faux berries and a cardinal who sits at the base of the tree. This is another festive way to bring the warmth of the holiday season into your celebration space – either for the ceremony or the reception or both.
Green and white are elegant and timeless winter colors. Paired together, these colors are the perfect way to celebrate your winter wonderland wedding. This beautiful ceremony arrangement is a stunning idea for any winter wedding!
White hydrangeas are classically elegant flowers, so much so that they are an important part of quintessential winter flower arrangements. They are also widely used in wedding arrangements- for the ceremony, reception and gallery. You can’t go wrong with any floral arrangement that incorporates such a special flower.
Flowers for Ceremony Chairs or Pews
Flowers are an important accent for chairs and pews. It transforms the atmosphere of the space from whatever it usually is, to something special, celebratory and festive. Maintain a theme when using flowers on seating areas. If you choose to use huge white hydrangeas in vases for the altar or wedding stage, then continue that with seating. Hydrangea With White and Gold is a wonderful idea for seating.
Don’t forget that wedding flowers are designed to be customized, and here at Nanz and Kraft, we’re anxious to help you make this important day, the most beautiful and meaningful one of your life.
